will be speaking with mike rogers and ed royce. >>> we begin with cnn pentagon correspondent, chris lawrence. obviously, this has been developing throughout the day. we have been struggling to chase this down and get the details. the u.s. government says it is taking the lead on the hostage situation. what is it doing to make sure the americans who are being held hostage are safe? >> erin, the first thing they did was to get some satellite surveillance over that area which means that the fbi can now monitor to some extent what is happening on the grown. the next thing the u.s. military did was upgrade the readiness sat tus of the so-called commander's in extremists force, the small lethal counter terrorism force that u.s. african command did not have when that was attacked in benghazi libya. it was stood up and allows african command to have a ready to go special operations team dedicated to hostage rescue and counter terrorism. this team we're told was already on its way to senegal to be in place for any potential missions that might come up with mali. they have been diverted in an undisclo
, very, very fluid and cnn can't independently verify some of the reporting taking place, but here's what's reported thus far. on wednesday a group of foreign national, gas workers from the inamina field were on their way to work. attacked by militants in three vehicles. those militants during the ensuing battle killed a briton and algerian, took them back to the gas plant, held them hostage, where the situation has been up to now. we've heard conflicting reports, unconfirmed reports, that there was an ongoing attack by helicopters, which the algerian press service said was absolute fantasy. we've heard, also, that, as you mentioned in your lead, four of the hostages have been freed. two britons, a french person and kenyan. in addition to that, an irish person has been freed. we don't really know, really, how much hostages there are. we've heard as low as 20 from the algerian state media and as high as 40 from the militants. so a very, very fluid situation. one that, you know, we're monitoring as the hours go by, but really don't have a whole lot to report, because we just don't have any
the warm weather, but we need to see if that's a good thing or not. cnn newsroom continues with brooke baldwin. >> brand-new developments in the terrorist attacks with the american hostages. what happened on the chaotic moments on the ground. i'm brooke baldwin. the news is now. it's bizarre and surreal and it's a mystery without answers. notre dame investigating the fake girlfriend of one of the players. an underworld boss known as grand dad is killed boy a sniper's bullet. pacino as paterno. it will include the scandal that took down the penn state legend? i'm brooke baldwin and you are watching cnn. let's begin with the unfolding crisis in algeria. americans are among those being held by islamic extremists at the oil field. there report that is the hostages here have been freed in the operation by the algerian army. >> one they can dam in the strongest terms a terrorist attack on bp, personnel and facilities in algeria. they are in contact with algerian authorities and the international partners as well as with bp's security office in london. the best we have at this time indicates
in the president's favor. a new cnn poll says 55% of americans 'do' want stricter gun control. some of the other executive orders. include one that would allow communities to hire more schoold another that d require federal law enforcement to trace all recovered guns. the n-r-a released its response in a commercial. grant lodes joins us with more on what the white house is ripping as a deeply personal attack. and the nra is referencing the president's daughters in this online ad that the n- r-a pre-emptively released yesterday. the white house pushing back, issuing a stern response to that ad: saying in part: "most americans agree that a president's children should not be used as pawns in a political fight."but to go so far as to make the safety of the president's children the subject of an attack ad, is repugnant and cowardly." >> reporter: the n-r-a defended the ad today, saying it is ready for a battle with the white house and congress. >> jacqueline: temperatures are going to be called third still, 30's to in a number of places to. the satellite and radar showing a blocking pattern fifth fie
in this debate, new polling shows the country is increasingly divided on this issue. the latest cnn "time" opinion research poll shows 55% americans favor stricter gun laws and 44% oppose them. 60% say it's too easy for people to buy a gun in the u.s., over 60% say stricter laws would not reduce the amount of violence in the country. that's pretty much confusion by the numbers. the public is also split on the cause of gun violence. just 23% say it's due to the availability of weapons. most responded that either parenting or popular culture are to blame. let's talk a bit more on the politics here of gun control. listen, what president obama proposed is sweeping and it's huge. the conversation now is what can actually get passed? give us a sense of what measures go passed? >> very little can get passed in the next couple of years. there's no doubt it's an emotionally charge issue. the polling numbers show that there does seem to be some movement at the public at large. but in congress there's simply is not. particularly among republicans and house republicans specifically. you talk to these
directly to northwestern people. >> let's take a look at a new cnn time orc poll that talks about that stricter gun control laws and what the temperature is. 55% favor districter gun control laws. and then if we look back just a little bit further to "the washington post," abc poll, they talk about armed guards in schools. this is where the dichotomy in school -- the poll shows that 55% support having armed guards in school whereas 52% oppose that. and karen, i want to start with you on this one. because for the people on the left who are proud to say they support second amendment rights, we look at that contrast there where people want to see districter gun control laws, but they also think that there is a legitimate discussion to be had about having armed guards at school. >> we haven't had that discussion. remember the -- thomas -- when you talk about having armed guards, you talk about arming teachers went have four states in the union where teacher are allowed to have concealed carry weapons but they don't have to tell the parents of their students that they have weapons even
still be shifting in the president's favor. a new cnn poll says 55% of americans 'do' want stricter gun control. other examples of the president's executive orders. one that would allow communities to hire more school counselors. and another that would require federal law enforcement to trace all recovered guns. >> the national rifle association is reacting swiftly, and boldly.releasing this commerical that calls the president a hypocrite. >> mister obama's press secretary issued a stern response to that ad: saying in part: most americans agree that a president's children should not be used as pawns in a political fight. >> pam: what do gun owners think? here in the bay area, they have their doubts about the new laws. >> i do not think that it is going to change anything. >> i am all for reasonable regulations. california has some of the most restrictive laws and the nation. >> to the problem, they attend to be addressing but i do not think that it is. >> people are going to find a way to get them regardless. >> members of those groups say that it eliminates a certain competitions that

'm sure you looked at the latest time cnn poll, most of the americans want what the president put on the table. >> exactly. we're not going to take guns away from those who are hunters -- i have many friends in the nra who believe their leadership is out of touch totally -- >> stephanie: who thinks it is okay to bring the president's kids into debate and what a ridiculous argument. >> i can't say on the air what i really think of that. >> stephanie: all right. out of respect for my fcc license, thank you. >> and i respect that. >> stephanie: me too. what do you think can get done on all of this? >> i believe that you are not going to get a package. i don't think that's the easy way -- the more difficult way to do it is to try to get a package. i probably think that we're going to have a package of ideas, but when it comes to the floor, they will be divided up into -- whether we're talking about magazines, how many bullets you can load into one of these rapid-fire weapons, and, you know registering your gun when you guy it. >> yeah. >> i think that's a sensibl
. we also did a poll with cnn. and it's interesting that the american public is not mobilized around this issue. the majority of americans actually agree with the nra about putting armed guards in schools. only 39% of americans think that the prevalence of guns is the cause of gun violence in schools. only something like 29% think greater gun control will be a solution for that. the ideological battle which the president has talked about is not by any means won at all. and, in fact, the gun control advocates have lost ground over the last 10, 15, 20 years. and that's the reality of it. >> and we have been talking about a holistic approach that needs to be taken. and you look at the specifics, whether you talk about assault weapon bans or registration or whether you talk about background checks. those numbers have gone up a great deal. >> yes, yes. and it's funny, because you see a divide now. because in terms of background checks and all of that, they are very high. they're unanimous. more than 50% of gun owners approve of that as well. but the notion that there is a causal relations
